    Nice to have another Brit on board! I'm from Lancashire, about 60 years ago, but hey, my Dad was from Wiltshire.

    I find turning to be the most fun you can have with a piece of wood. The most important thing to me is to keep those tools razor sharp. I didn't understand this the first time I had a lathe, and I innocently tried to turn a sort of spindle shape. It looked like it had been chewed by the dog. Bring on your questions!
    Cheers,
    Roger

    Thanks all for the warm welcome. It's literally been years since I used any forum. I used to be a biker well Maxi Scooter rider, and used many forums, that was my passion until I realised that people were trying to kill me and I wasn't that paranoid. As for my lathe it's just a little one.

    Even though it's been years since you've been on a forum, you'll likely notice we're a bit different around here. For starters, we're all stunningly handsome. And remarkably humble, as well.

    That looks like a nice setup. The lathe is nicer than the one I started out on, and the chuck and all the extra jaws should help cover a lot of ground.

    That's fantastic news, I'll fit in just fine.

    Much nicer than my first lathe. Oh, myself, I'm humble, and proud of it!
